Aldi are asking customers not to consume their Clancy’s Barbecue Flavour Coated Peanuts.
This is because they contain cashew nuts, a fact which was not stated on the label.
The product is a possible health risk to anyone with a nut allergy.
Stores affected are in the areas of Neston, Chester, Darlington, County Durham, and Goldthorpe, Barnsley.
As well as recalling this product, Aldi is also issuing a point-of-sale notice to its customers.
These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled.
Any customer who returns the nuts will receive a full refund.
Aldi issued a recall via the Food Standards Agency website.
An Aldi spokesperson said: “We have recalled a single batch of this product as a precaution because a small number of packs may contain cashew nuts. This ingredient was not declared on the product label.
“Customers should return the product to their nearest store where they will receive a full refund.”
he Foods Standards Agency have issued the following advice: “If you have bought the above product and have an allergy to nuts, do not eat it.
“Instead return it to the store form where it was bought.”
The product details are as follows:
Barbecue Flavour Coated Peanuts
Pack size: 200g
‘Best before’ end: 07/1018
Batch code: 7292 7291
This is not the first product recall Aldi have made this year. Over the summer, the store was forced to urgently recall a beer over allergy risks.
Anyone who had a barley allergy and had purchased its Brasserie Gluten Free Organic Pale Ale was told to return the item due to its undeclared barley content.
